As is the case with most Greek islands, restaurants, and bars in Milos do not disappoint!

From cozy tavernas and quaint tables lining cobblestone trees, to seaside restaurants with front row seats to those awesome Greek sunsets and everything in between, restaurant-hopping in Milos will become one of your favorite things to do on the island.

Perhaps the best surprise in Milos for me was having to pay only €2.50 for a glass of wine at a sea-side restaurant in Adamas! Talk about a warm welcome to the island!

It's hard to walk 2 minutes without seeing fresh squid hanging out to dry outside a restaurant (RIP!). Read on for the best restaurants, cafes, and bars to try during your time in Milos!
